Why Does Blood Have a Metallic Taste?

There’s a good chance you’ve tasted your own blood after a minor injury. That metallic taste in the blood was probably the first thing that caught your attention.

The metal taste in blood is caused by hemoglobin; The most important substance of red blood cells, which ensures the transmission of oxygen and carbon gas between the lungs and the eyes.

A large portion of the iron in our body, 50-70%, is found in hemoglobin, which is rich in iron. That’s why blood has a metallic taste.Especially if there is bleeding somewhere directly in your mouth (such as your tongue, palate, gums), you taste this taste more intensely because the blood directly comes into contact with your taste buds before it can start to repair (the body stops the blood).
